Cassper on being skinny: "Boity inspired me"
One of the most unexpected stories of 2014 had to be the dramatic weight loss of Cassper Nyovest. The rapper, formerly known for his chubby figure, shocked us all when he appeared in public near the end of the year in a much skinnier frame.
Some fans believed it was muti, others thought it was illness, but most thought it might be stress and a heavy workload that saw him constantly beat out songs for his fans.
So, when The Juice caught up with Cassper recently, we got a chance to ask him what the real reason for his shrink waistline was.
“I’m just eating right!," he says. "The most important thing I learnt is to eat enough and to eat right. I eat a lot but I eat right, no carbs or fat. I also exercise. I don’t take pills or injections,” he says.
He says he was inspired by Boity and Amanda. “I always wanted to be healthy but being friends with Boity helped. She’s a health freak. She wouldn’t stop bugging me to eat healthy. She was always on my case!,” he says, adding, “And Amanda too. She showed me pictures of herself when she was young and it made me realise I have no excuse”.
He says he hits the gym a little, but gets most of his workout from performing.
We even tried to get him to agree to go to a gym sesh with The Juice and Somizi but he sadly declined. Pity!
